We gave it a B-

After Indy storms the box office, Harrison Ford the action star will give way to Harrison Ford the dramatic actor (remember him?) for this ensemble piece, which explores the effects of illegal immigration. The heavy subject matter — normally art-house fare — might reach a mass market thanks to a cast that also includes Sean Penn as a border patroller, Ray Liotta as a low-level official, and Ashley Judd as a defense attorney. ”I’m sure that I’m the weakest link in the movie,” Judd jokes of her costars. ”And I’m totally okay with that.” Next to those guys, we would be too.
